Sure, makes sense. But the total amount of change here isn't so great.

The code already has many; I'm not sure it's likely to get much worse.

The key to this question is *where* the extra conversions are. I don't  
want to make a blanket statement that this is OK -- I think it's  
pretty easy to do this in a way where there's no one step that  
introduces a ton of additional conversion.
